Real World Advanced Technologies for Diesel Engines
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon2020 Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 636380.
The objective of the REWARD project is to develop highly fuel efficient diesel engines, to improve exhaust gas treatment systems, to advance on board monitoring and diagnostics in order to meet (forthcoming) EU-legislation on emission standards and fuel economy under real driving conditions. At the same time, REWARD will contribute to the competitiveness of the European automotive industry by enhancing the ability of its partners to successfully market substantial volumes of high quality cars (including sub-systems) with attractive designs, driving behaviour and fuel economy.
CTU is involved in work package 4 which focuses on the development of a novel 2-stroke engine with optimised engine performance in terms of fuel efficiency and engine out emissions in order to achieve a fuel saving of 5% compared to state of the art EU6 4-stroke engines for the same B/C class vehicles. CTU is responsible for 1-D simulations of the engine, for air loop optimizations and finally for the 2-stroke technology potential assessment on multicylinder engine under relevant driving cycles (NEDC and WLTC).
The estimated eligible REWARD costs are EUR 12,602,906.00. The EU Commission grant reimburses 100% of the eligible costs of the beneficiaries that are non-profit legal entities and 70% of the eligible costs of the beneficiaries and the linked third parties that are profit legal entities.

A well-balanced group of full partners – 4 scientific partners, 4 companies and 2 SME’s. The industrial partners bring in application knowledge and expertise, and the researchpartners bring in a range of engineering methodologies. The coordinator ViF (Kompetenzzentrum Das virtuelle Fahrzeug Forschungsgesellschaft mbH) is a research institute and forms a link between the academic and the industrial partners being involved in both research activities and the development of methodology for industrial applications. The geographical situation of the partners forms a network in the EU, linking EU nationalities and associated countries in one team of technological excellence.
Gas-Only internal combustion engines
GasOn project aims to develop advanced CNG only, mono-fuel engines able to comply with the “2020+” CO2 emission targets, claiming the 20% CO2 emission reduction with regard to current best in class CNG vehicle segment by segment, to fulfill the new homologation cycle and to guarantee a low fuel consumption even in real driving conditions. To reach these targets, starting from the lessons learnt by previous EU FP7 funded INGAS project (www.ingas-eu.org), GasOn project is based on 3 parallel technology ways that will lead to a full development of demonstrator engines, all based on the integration of the gaseous direct injection technology with others like advanced Variable Valve Actuator VVA, advanced boosting, variable compression ratio, charge dilution combustion and related improved aftertreatment.

To complete the investigation of all potential exploitable technologies for CNG engines, an ignition chamber concept, with extended lean burn combustion and diesel like compression ratio, will be developed, as well as gas quality sensor that will determine the fuel characteristics and will enable a predictive engine control parameters optimization.
The final outcomes will be 3 demonstrator vehicles (one for each technology way) equipped with advanced storage systems enabling driving range equivalent to conventional fuel (without any drawback in terms of trunk capacity) and mitigating the weakness of refuelling infrastructure.
The Center of Vehicles for Sustainable Mobility of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague participates in the thermodynamical simulations and the design of the turbochatrging and air path of the Renauls engine in Workpackages WP04 and WP06.
